FounderLine is a live weekly webcast devoted to helping startup founders succeed, hosted by seven-time startup entrepreneur and investor Joe Beninato. Each week, Joe welcomes an experienced entrepreneur or investor to discuss startup-related topics and field questions from entrepreneurs around the world. In addition, regular guest Mitch Zuklie, Chairman & CEO of Orrick, will be on-hand to discuss legal issues in the "Ask the Lawyer" segment. FounderLine is broadcast live every Thursday evening from 5-6pm Pacific Time. For more information, go to founderline.com.
In this episode, host Joe Beninato and guest Ariel Poler answer listener questions including:
- How do angel investors find investments? - What about launching a company into a space where there have been multiple entrants but no successes? - What about some of the online services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo? Are those a viable way to launch a product? - At the very early stages of our company, should we do a convertible note or an equity round? - What target IRR do investors look for when looking at an opportunity to invest? Does that number differ inversely with the assessed likelihood of the company being successful?
In the "Ask The Lawyer" segment, Mitch Zuklie of Orrick discusses corporate structures. This program was aired on KMVT15 Community Media.
